Do they get past the Flames though? Obviously that season was the Flames peak and after surviving their first-round scare against the Canucks they crushed the Kings & Blackhawks and even the Habs only amounted to a speed bump.

In 1993, the Kings lost in the finals to 5 games. In 1994, the Rangers won the Cup. It's quite possible that if the Oilers had been kept together, one of these Cups would have been theirs.'
1994 then. 1993 clearly had some kind of destiny-voodoo going on for the Canadiens, 100th anniversary of the Cup and all. Although Gretzky did all but single-handedly thwart the Canadiens-Leafs final...
